Ossie Clark famously could take shears to Celia Birtwell printed chiffon and cut into it so confidently that the strips of fabric could be sewn together to create a gown like that one below.  I remember buying two of these gowns 15 years ago at Portobello Market before Ossie became a collector's rage.  We also had the definitive collection of vintage Ossie which we famously exhibited (and sold) at Decades a few years after Clark's untimely death in 1996.  Some archival photos of our historic collection are viewable here.  It was with great nostaliga when this Ossie came our way.  If you are unfamiliar with Ossie, do yourself a favor and have a Google-fest.  I bet this is one of the first dresses and prints that you discover!
